town. the curfew has been in effect for a couple hours. it took awhile to get everybody off the streets but the police commissioner last night said it's work. ten people have been raestsed. a very heavy police presence throughout the city as officials try and keep calm and avoid the violence we saw last night. darkness fell over baltimore and a curfew went into effect from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. nobody allowed out on the streets. but not everybody listened. >> clear the area. >> reporter: police went around with bullhorns and broadcast messages from helicopters urging people to go home. there were some minor skirmishes protests are throwing bottles at police who responded with smoke and flash bangs but after that the crowds thinned out. across west baltimore, they picked up pieces. >> yesterday broke my heart. today i feel proud. >> reporter: residents coming together to clean up the broken glass and debris. >> it breaks my heart because

>> how incredibly odd. butable. karen, there's been criticism over the way the city responded to the violence and that fire at cvs. what are you hearing? >> reporter: certainly issues about the timing of things the governor, larry hogan, a republican said that the mayor took too long to call up the national guard that they were waiting for cues and directions from baltimore officials before they could do that. now, larry hogan did say normally it takes eight hours to get the national guard fully up and activated in these circumstances. he said they did it in three hours. 1700 guardsmen were in baltimore in place and working with law enforcement officials. it was a very tremendous police presence 1,000 police officers in addition to those national guardsmen. >> karen travers reporting live for us this morning in baltimore. thank you so much. we'll check in with you again. >> at least ten people were arrested since the curfew went into effect. >> police commissioner saying he's pleased the community leaders and clergy are urging

discrimination. >> all eyes on justice kennedy likely the deciding vote. at first he seemed skeptical about the court changing the long-standing view that marriage is between a man and a woman. >> this definition has been with us for millennia. and it's very difficult for the court to say oh well, we know better. >> but he was also critical of the opponent's argument that marriage is primarily about having children. >> you will some premise that only opposite sex couples can have a bonding with the child. that's -- that was very interesting but it's the wrong premise. >> over the course of two and a half hours of argument the court seemed deeply divided with justice kennedy right in the middle. we'll know his decision and the court's decision by june 30th. jonathan carl abc news at the supreme court. well, at the opposite end of pennsylvania avenue last night, president obama and the first lady hosted a state dinner for japan's visiting prime minister. >> familiar faces here on the guest list. look at that.
